Author Ron Shaw at Archives Lanark AGM, Jan. 26

ARCHIVES LANARK ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 2019,   1 – 4 P.M.

1920 Drummond Concession 7, Drummond Centre

On January 26th, 2019 Archives Lanark will be hosting their 2nd AGM from 1-4pm.  It will be held at 1920 Drummond Concession 7, Drummond Centre.  We hope people will join us to learn more about Archives Lanark, meet our Board of Directors and enjoy listening to our guest speaker, Ron Shaw.  Admission is free, although donations are always gratefully appreciated.  Light refreshments will be provided.

Ron Shaw is a local author who has written many books relating to our local history.  At the AGM, Ron will provide an overview of his most recent book “A Swarm of Bees”, which recounts a journey begun in 1820 that, over the course of 50 years, took 18 ‘Lanark County Settler’ families from the slums of Glasgow, through Eastern and Western Ontario, and the American Midwest, to the Salt Lake Valley of Utah.  These pioneer families were among the earliest converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and their story unfolds in the context of the founding and earliest days of the Mormon Faith.

Other books written by Ron will be on hand for purchase.  Archives Lanark Rural School Books for Montague, Drummond, Lanark and North Elmsley Township will be available as well as an assortment of books by various local authors.
